Epson’s new EMP-400W projector: wide screen short throw, big impact

Epson’s ultra short throw wide screen projector – the EMP-400W – makes a big impact for presenters, lecturers and corporate boardrooms delivering a 60 inch wide screen image from as close as 65 cm.
Following these key points is a detailed media release about Epson’s new short throw wide screen projector, the EMP-400W:

  • Epson’s EMP-400W ultra short throw wide screen projector makes a big impact for presenters, lecturers and corporate boardrooms delivering a 60 inch wide screen image from only 65 cm away.
  • The EMP-400W can be mounted on a boom attached to the wall and the presenter can stand close to the image and interact with the whiteboard without shadows interfering with the audience’s view, and without lamp glare in the presenter’s eyes.
  • With Epson’s newly developed high precision lens, the EMP-400W is the only short throw, wide-screen (16:10) projector available, and it can fill the screen of any interactive whiteboard or screen regardless of its aspect ratio(4:3, 16:9, and 16:10.).

Release follows:

With its ultra short throw wide screen lens, positioning of the projector is no longer a problem as the EMP-400W can be mounted on a boom attached to the wall and the presenter can stand close to the image and interact with the whiteboard without shadows interfering with the audience’s view, and without lamp glare in the presenter’s eyes.
Connecting cables can be run through the boom, reducing installation costs and also leaving the front of screen clear to allow more seats in the audience or audience members to sit closer to the screen.  Even in a small room the EMP-400W can project a large image without interfering with audience space.

With Epson’s newly developed high precision lens, the EMP-400W is the only short throw, wide-screen (16:10) projector available.  It projects in Wide XGA (1280 x 768 pixels), an increasingly common format for laptops and PCs, and it can also be adjusted for interactive white boards (and regular screens) to give aspect ratios of 4:3, 16:9, and 16:10.

Epson makes its own low cost highly efficient E-TOR lamps, and the 4000 hour 1800 Ansi lumen long life lamp in the EMP-400W can be replaced easily by loosening a single screw on the hatch on top of the projector
The air-filter can be easily replaced by simply accessing it from the slot at the front of the projector.  No tools are needed.

With multiple EMP-400Ws connected to a LAN, each one may be individually operated and monitored from a remote PC.  If a lamp or temperature anomaly is detected, a notification will be sent via e-mail from the projector to the PC.  When used in a corporate or school environment for example, each projector may be turned on or off via the network and any abnormalities monitored from a central facilities management office.

The EMP-400W has dual VGA inputs, audio out, a 10W speaker and a LAN port for remote monitoring.  It comes with Epson’s 3 year warranty and all the reliability and quality benefits of Epson’s renowned 3LCD and patented E-TOR lamp technology.
Epson continues to be the market leader in projector sales globally and in Australia, with a 20% share of the Australian market in 2007 for its broad range of 3LCD education, corporate and high definition home theatre projectors.

The EMP-400W is distributed in Australia by Ingram Micro, Alloys and Westan and is available now through Epson dealers at an RRP of $2399 in Australia.
